Katie will be leading an adult Woodcut Printmaking Workshop (ages 15 yrs up) on Saturday 9 July, 10am -3pm.
Katie is an experienced artist and teacher who will guide you through the process of woodcut printmaking. You will go away with your own original artwork and woodblock to keep.
Woodcutting is one of the earliest, simplest – but most effective – methods of printing. At a time when almost any effect can be digitally mimicked and created, there’s much to be said for the painstaking labour and ink-covered process of this technique.
The workshop will be held on site at Railway St Gallery where Katie’s latest body of work is on show. Using curves and gently overlapping layers, made up from earthy tones of terracotta, green, muted blues and orange, Blundell creates space and depth. While more subdued in colour compared to her paintings, these hues emit a certain radiance and show off the physicality of the printing process.
You may find inspiration here or work from your own ideas and resources. To find more and to book please phone or text 021 419 292 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are limited places available. All materials included $170 pp.
